One issue resolved, onto the next...

Friday, January 17, 2014

So, everything is OK on the job front. There was never an issue of "do I have a job?" more along the lines of "is this the kind of work I want to be doing?" (at least some parts of my job), but my manager and I had a very nice chat, came up with a game plan, and so I feel much better about it.

But, as the saying goes, "horror vacui" ("Nature abhors a vacuum."). Last evening, I talked with my brother, who is in Arizona with my SIL visiting family. They went over to see my dad last evening and cook up some dinner, and my brother just saw a lot of thing that concerned him about our dad. He has lived alone for over 2 years now, and we're beginning to wonder if that period of time (and of course his age) are starting to take their toll?

We've brought up on numerous occasions the idea of him moving into one of the many nice retirement communities in the area and in fact took a tour of one a little less than two years ago, and he seemed quite quite interested at the time, but obviously it has gone nowhere.

More work to do here -- thankfully my company provides help in this area, so I plan to take full advantage of it, and in fact already made a phone call to get the process moving.

It appears 2014 is shaping up as an "interesting" year already!
